Tell the doctor what happened to you. • Document the Incident. Write down exactly what was said by the offender as well as a physical description and all the details of the event. • Save evidence. Retain all evidence of the event. • Photograph visible injuries, graffiti, property damage. This will aid in the prosecution and the police department will do this for free. • Collect names and phone numbers of witnesses.
